*DIGITAL* Vermont Reads Book Discussion: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Vermont Department of Libraries
2021 marks the 19th year of the Vermont Reads program, in which Vermont Humanities invites people across the state to read the same book and participate in a wide variety of community activities related to the book’s themes.
Mississippi writer Angie Thomas’ debut novel, The Hate U Give, runs headlong into the challenges faced by young black kids in a world that doesn’t value their bodies or respect their voices. Yet it’s a universal story about a young girl making the choice to speak out. Starr’s struggle to find her voice will likely resonate deeply with any kid who is facing down violence in their home, their neighborhood or their country.
